Question about Carrier 38CKC060 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Carrier 38CK036330 Hi,  I totally know nothing about air conditioning. It's getting so hot in LA and we really need help since our house has a 18-month old child. We have a Carrier 38CK036330 central unit, and it's not cooling the house as we'd like it to. It's already about 13 years old and we are looking for a new one to replace it. The question is we cannot find this model anymore, or do we have to replace it with the same model?? What model or brand would you suggest for a 1350 square feet house? How many tons or hp should we get? And, what SEER should we look for? These may be some stupid questions, but hopefully someone out there can help us out. Thank you very much, in advance. Andy

The model numbers change.You have a 3 ton system.The make and model that you replace it with is not nearly as important as a quality install.Do your homework on picking a contractor that you can trust.Have them do a load calculation to make sure a 3ton system is right for your house.13 seer is the minimum you can get.You need to weigh the projected annual savings of higher seer units against the added cost of having them installed.Again,get a contractor you trust and go with the best warranty.None were stupid questions.

Boiler does not fire up sometimes and takes around 5 minutes to fire up when it does.


If you've had it for about 18 years it may be time for a replacement or, at the very least, a boiler repair. I had mine replaced three months ago and it was 15 years old. I think that it is important to make sure that you replace important things like this about every 15 years just to ensure that everything is working properly and is up to date. How long have you had issues with it? Because if it has worked really well up until recently then all you probably need is just the repair though. Bailey Plumbing and Heating and Air Conditioning

Amica oven door gets so hot that my child has burnt hes hands and needed medical attention


Amica is a European brand, I recommend you contact the company headquarters or a competant local repair shop. Any oven left at a very high temperature for a long period of time gets pretty hot, though, and an eleven month old baby has pretty tender skin.

Do I need to put air conditioning in my dog house? It seems kind of extravagant.


It depends where you live, but if you live in a hot climate and suffer from the heat yourself (and use air con to cool yourself down), the chances are that your dog is suffering too. The dog house provides some shade but it doesn't help humidity and really hot temperatures.

I'm expecting another child soon. Should I move my 18 month old son to a toddler bed before I give birth?


Having a new sibling is a big transition for your little one. It might be a good time to move to a toddler bed and make him feel like a big boy but you have to do it gently and at the right pace for him so he doesn't feel pushed out by the new baby. Read this article which gives some really good tips about moving to a toddler bed. http://www.babycenter.com/404_how-and-when-should-i-move-my-child-from-a-crib-to-a-bed_4598.bc Good luck with the new arrival!

Your Carrier guys more than likely are Carrier dealers. I would get a second opinion. Most qualified HVAC techs can work on any and all brands. It doesn't need to be a Carrier dealer to work on a Carrier. AND, if they replaced the control board and didn't test the heat, that's a fault on their part. Anytime we change a board or even a thermostat, we check ALL modes and functions. SECOND OPINION!!!
